Psychology Colloquium with Dr. Yaakov Stern 

DESCRIPTION: Dr. Yaakov Stern Cognitive Neuroscience Division of the Sergievsky Center; Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons Cognitive Reserve: Theory and Applications The concept of cognitive reserve suggests that the differences in how individuals process tasks can provide a reserve against brain pathology, or age-related changes. Epidemiologic studies have found that individuals with greater cognitive reserve as indicated by higher IQ, education, occupational attainment or participation in leisure activities experience slower age-related cognitive decline and a reduced risk for Alzheimer's disease. Imaging studies have begun to identify the neural basis for cognitive reserve, and may prove helpful in the early detection and treatment of Alzheimer's disease. The concept of cognitive reserve is applicable to any condition that affects brain function and has important consequences for clinical diagnosis and characterization. In the future, enhancing cognitive reserve may help forestall age-related changes in the brain and the clinical onset of neurodegenerative disease.
